A huge exhibition dedicated to Gio Ponti is coming to Paris' Museé des Arts Décoratifs later this year!
Set inside @madparis’s main hall, over 500 of his works – from architecture to industrial design, furniture to lighting, and from the creation of journals to his incursion into the fields of glassware, ceramics and silversmithing – will be presented.
Many of these pieces will be contributed by @moltenidada, which – since 2010 – has renewed its focus on the masters of architecture and design, with re-makes of Gio Ponti’s furniture.
"While Gio Ponti’s work is admired today by enlightened design enthusiasts and highly coveted by collectors, it nevertheless remains little known in France. This exhibition is an opportunity to introduce the wider public to the creative world of this mythical character from the Italian design scene, whose generosity and passion stimulated his contemporaries and continues to inspire new generations of designers and architects," said the Museé des Arts Décoratifs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

👑 Every Jewelry nerd finding themselves in Paris until September, should go and see “From Calder to Koons, Jewelry by Artists” @madparis #museedesartsdecoratifs
Artists aren’t jewelers, they don’t make pieces for profit. They create jewels for their loved ones or close friends, making them therefor deeply personal and almost always one-of-a-kind.
I will post my favorite pieces over the next weeks, of which there are many, and that don’t deserve to be bundled into a cluster post, in my own humble opinion. For they are exquisite examples of different artists creating wearable art, and thus deserve their own individual spotlights.
